Possess Nothing Event at Plus Gallery, AWP 2010

Thanks to everyone who visited the Apostrophe Books table at AWP and/or came by Plus Gallery on Saturday night for Possess Nothing. And thanks to all the other editors from Action Books, Black Ocean, Slope, and Tarpaulin Sky for helping put on a fabulous event. It was standing room only and more — sorry for those of you who couldn’t find a seat or any space at all. We have a few video links from Ivar Zeile (Plus Gallery owner) and other links including an article on the event from a publication in Telluride, CO. Have a look:
